Innovative Clean Transit

Providing clean transit and mobility options must include a long-term transition to zero-emission technologies while continuing to provide transportation options as part of Sustainable Communities Strategies and ensuring service to people with limited transportation options. Accordingly, the Advanced Clean Transit measure has been expanded and renamed to the Innovative Clean Transit (ICT) measure.

The transformation of the transit fleet is an important step to accelerate the use of advanced technologies in heavy-duty vehicles to meet air quality, climate, and public health goals.

The following are key goals in the overall strategy:

•   Support the near-term deployment of zero-emission buses where the economics are viable and where transit service can be maintained or expanded. •   Secure binding commitments from the State’s transit providers for a long-term vision for transitioning to zero-emission technologies across all transit modes. •   Partner with transit agencies to pilot innovative approaches to improve access to transit systems with zero-emissions first- and last-mile solutions.
